Still alive. Updated bio. See my personal page for any further updates.

deekayen: Cox's DHCP server has been down since around Friday for me... cable link works fine, but not even the Win2k machine can get a lease. This morning I "Fixed" it by manually ifconfig'ing the interface with the last lease values I got out of /var/log/debug .... tech support was totally useless.
zeevon: I'm going to see Rammstein on the 31st when they come here (Washington, DC) ... tickets came in the mail yesterday, I'm psyched :)

trow: I absolutely HATED that book. I had to read it for English 101 class in college a few years ago. Bleck.

Been busy with the new job and school, and planning for stuff for the wedding in September. Built .debs of the new freeamp and musicbrainz releases today. Orphaned off most of my packages except for freeamp and gkrellm, as I don't use most of the others. Hard to believe it's been almost 4 months since my last diary entry. Time flies when you're busy.

Got into work at 5AM today, so I can leave at a decent hour. Changing jobs then not having any leave right before the holidays blows. Oh well. At least it's quiet...and I've been semi-productive.

I'm glad some people are having my share of partying :)

On a side note, we got a cable modem installed on Wednesday. It's sooooo much nicer than dialup...

Last day of work at Winstar. Cleaning out the desk and wrapping up the loose ends. I'll miss my coworkers greatly... must endeavor to keep in touch.

I voted. Annoyed that my voting station didn't give out "I voted" stickers. Bastards. My first time voting (I was 17 1/2 in 96) and I don't even get the damn sticker. :-)

nosinut: In the interests of keeping Advogato a place free of charred rubble, I shall ignore your comment.

KDE2 is nice.

Last week for this job is next week. Fun.

explodingdog kicks ass.

neuro: We have the red-light traffic cameras here in northern Virginia, too. Haven't gotten caught by one yet :)

aaronl: When I used to trick-or-treat, what determined us going to houses or not was if they had some sort of halloween-looking stuff out in front - pumpkin, ghosts, cobwebs, whatever. We generally knew who did not celebrate halloween and did not 'threaten' people to give us candy. Certainly things may be different where you are, but there's more to halloween than a bunch of kids going around demanding candy... it's fun to just let loose, use your imagination, and relax every now and then. If you don't want people coming to your door, make it plain to the parents of said children that you do not celebrate halloween and wish to be left alone...or put a sign on your door saying 'No candy, go elsewhere' or whatnot. If you're in any kind of a decent neighborhood, they should respect your wishes.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
